Jenny Santellano- A Poem

Only The Dead Know
Under the night sky
I stand
and escape
to a place
in my mind
where there are
no human beings
to desecrate
my soul
There I have
the clarity to see
why we all dance
in the same circle
We live
in a world
of narcissistic
where vengeance
and brutality
reign supreme
Every one of us is
an abandoned child
It seems our existence
is meaningless
without the demise
of our fellow
brothers and sisters
It is only then
that we begin
to cherish
one another
It’s a lesson we will
never learn-
Only the dead know
Death breathes life
upon the living
